iStar is a specially designed Akram Retreat for International Teenagers & Youth (between the age of 13 to 21 years), that gives them the opportunity to study in-depth the Spiritual Science unveiled by Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan.
The Retreat is held for all international youths with an interest in learning Spiritual Science through Dada Bhagwan's Akram Vignan. It is conducted in a very simple and lucid way, using modern methodologies, to suit the liking of today's youth. The Retreat includes interactive activities, day-trips, jatra (religious tour), group discussions, self development programs & games, videos and also darshan session with Pujya Deepakbhai, and satsang sessions with Aptputra bhaio & Aptputri behno. It gives a wonderful opportunity for youngsters to visit India & Simandhar city to get a flavour of Indian culture, interact with other like-minded youths from various countries and get an in-depth introductory understanding of Akram Vignan (step-less spiritual path).
This retreat is held in India at Simandhar City (Adalaj,Gujarat) every summer (July / August) for two weeks. So it provides a great opportunity to visit India and Simandhar City to get a flavor of Indian culture, interact with other youths from across the world whilst learning Dada Bhagwan's Akram Vignan. For the convenience of the participants, the language of communication during the retreat is English.
As we are all already aware, this year we shall be marking the grand celebration of Dadashri’s 111 Janma Jayanti (JJ111), an international mega-event, starting 15th of November to 25th November 2018.
Generally, iStar takes place in the months of July or August every year. However, this year many prospective participants of iStar are leaning towards and planning to attend the JJ111 event instead of iStar 2018. This is mainly because being part of this international event is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Due to the reasons mentioned above, we, the iStar team, want to estimate the interest level and the number of international teenagers & youths who would attend iStar 2018 under the given circumstances.
For this, we request that you fill a form for your INTENT to participate iStar 2018 as early as possible or at the latest by the mid-February 2018. The tentative iStar 2018 dates are 21st August to 3rd September & registration shall tentatively begin by April.
Depending on the level of interest and the interested participants count, the iStar Team will conduct a feasibility study to determine whether iStar 2018 can be conducted or postponed to the next year 2019. We shall be informing you all accordingly by mid-March 2018.
